    We arrive 14/11/2017 at 13.20pm and depart again at 00.50. Would love to do tour of Forbidden City and Tiannmen square, can this be arranged with the timeframe we have. Do we need a visa

    • admin says:

      Hi Antoinette,

      I do not recommend you to visit the Forbidden City. Since your time is very tight. (You would need 1-1.5 hours to get through the immigration then meet our guide. You need another 1 hour from the airport drive to the city center. The Forbidden City stop entering at 15:30 in low season.)

        • admin says:

          Hi Antoinette,

          We recommend you visit the Summer Palace or Hutongs. We just sent you an email about detailed tour itineraries, please check.

          You can get visa free at Beijing airport.

    Hello,

    We (2 people) arrive 17/08 at Beijing at 20:45u.
    We depart from Beijing 18/08 at 12:40u.

    Is it possible for us to visit the forbidden city and the great wall?

    Kind regards,
    Anne

    My husband and I are taking a 10 day trip to Thailand, and we have layovers in Beijing at the beginning and end of our trip. I recently been booked a layover trip to the Great Wall with your company (April 30). Can we book another layover tour for when we return (May 9)? We are US citizens. I wasn’t sure if we would be able to obtain authorization (visas) a second time within 10 days.

    • admin says:

      Hi Sherelle,

      Thank you for contacting us!

    Hi,

    I’ve got a layover in Bejing on July 24-25, departing at 1pm on July 25. Is it possible to do a Temple of Heaven and Forbidden City Tour on the morning of July 25 and make it to the airport in time for my flight?

    I know the Temple of Heaven opens at 6am and the Forbidden City at 8:30, I know it would just be the highlights of both… But, I don’t know when I’d be back.

    Hello,

    I arrive on CA 822 at 7:45 am and depart at CA 995 at 15:00 pm. Is that enough time to do the tour for 2 people? Can we keep our luggage in car during the tours? We can shorten our time at the forbidden city to make the return flight.

  8. Brandon A says:

    Do these tours have to be booked in advance? I don’t mind paying the $60 or so dollars to go with a group (strangers are fine) but would I have to pay the 180 if I book it without a group of friends?

    • admin says:

      Hi Brandon,

      Thank you for your message.

      All of our tours from airport are private tours. We do not have join group tour. So if you travel alone, the tour price is USD180. And you would have to book the tour in advance. Then we will have time to arrange the tour for you.

    Interested in Forbidden city layover tour. Arriving at Beijing Airport at 6:20 am flight leaves same day at 12 pm. Would we have time to do this tour and still catch our flight on Air China to Los Angeles?

  13. Broillet says:

    We (3 adults) land in Beijing on Monday, December 21st at 11.45 and leave on the same day at 19.30. Would it be possible to visit Central Beijing, with Tiananmen Square and forbidden City? Or is it closed on Monday?
    What would be the price.
    Best regards,

    Françoise Broillet

    • admin says:

      Yes, the Forbidden City is closed on Mondays. So I suggest you visit other attractions in Beijing, such as Great Wall, Hutong, or Summer Palace, etc.
